Welcome to Aloysius “Al” Aldufarb’s 40th birthday party! It’s quite the spectacle – Al spares no expense when it comes to his personal festivities. The party is a flurry of food and fun, until a frantic scream fills the mansion and Wilbert Wilberton, Al’s butler and gardener, is found dead on the kitchen floor. His body is covered in bites, a stick of brand-new butter is in his pocket, and a strong odor of something vile and offensive is radiating off his corpse. The situation is very strange indeed, which is why you must determine the murderer quickly, and without incident. After all, who knows what other strange and bizarre occurrences await you?

The murderer can only be one of you.

Good luck.

ANYONE, experienced murder mystery game players and novices alike, can enjoy all three levels of my mystery games. But in case you’re curious, here’s how I break down the three levels:

LEVEL: FLEXIBLE This level is super flexible and allows players to be involved as much or as little as they desire. It’s a great game to play as a first-time murder mystery player and can be a great get-to-know-you activity for groups of people that have yet to bond.

LEVEL: INSPECTOR The characters in this level tend to have more clues and secrets, so there’s a little more reading before each round. It’s a great game to play for everyone!

LEVEL: INTRIGUE The essential characters in this level tend to have a lot of secrets and clues. There’s more to keep track of, but that also means there’s more intrigue, more twists, and more laughs! It’s a great game to play with your friends and family, people you know really well and can really “vibe” off of, if you know what I mean.



Aloysius “Al” Aldufarb

Al is an eccentric billionaire living alone with his trusty butler and gardener, Wilbert Wilberton. He made his fortune by inventing many genius devices, one of which being the Mechanical Wiper, a “Hands Free Bathroom Experience!” He likes to spend his life alone, a recluse in his grand mansion, save for his butler and beloved herd of chickens.

Burt Billings

Burt is a run-of -the-mill rubber chicken salesman, just trying to make ends meet in this topsy turvy world.

Ralph Rathbone, King of the Squirrels

As King of the Squirrels, Ralph was born into a role that requires dignity, courage, and a strong sense of responsibility. His mother was a human and his father was a squirrel, so he experiences the best of both worlds: human height and strength, and squirrel-like speed and agility.

Gilbert Gilderoy

Gilbert is a great safari hunter, world renowned and world revered. He has hunted the giant man-eating tree frog in Laos; he has scaled the Great Wall of China to eliminate the rare and deadly red-eyed poisonous panda bear; and most recently, he has pursued every dangerous and majestic creature the vast continent of Africa has to offer. Now, he attends AL’s birthday party to relax and have a little fun.

General Emerald Emerson, Champion of Empolia, Land of Lollipops and Hand Grenades

As General and Champion of Empolia, Emerald is serious and powerful – and she’s on a mission to free Empolia, a land that is suffering under the leadership of a ruthless dictator.

Faye Florentine

Faye is an 80’s aerobics and dance routine teacher, and she’s passionate to share her dance with the world. She’s also Al Aldufarb’s longtime neighbor and was the best friend of his wife Alice, before Alice mysteriously disappeared.

Clarissa Classen

Clarissa is a coroner, hawk trainer, and nationally renowned collector of Amish zippers. Her many interests and eccentricities make her the ideal dinner party guest, and she’s always ready and willing to ask questions, dig for answers, and share her hobbies with others.

Zilla Zilch

Zilla is a sewer dweller who spends her days in the dark and disgusting tunnels underneath the neighborhood. Because of this lifestyle, Zilla is privy to all the deep, dark secrets of the surface-dwellers, yet she still manages to treat the surface-dwellers with something close to compassion.


Sparkle Gleam, Queen of the Fireflies

As Queen of the Fireflies, Sparkle Gleam is regal, demanding, and a little bit sparkly. She was not invited to the party, but she came anyway – because that’s the kind of person she is. Her number one goal is to get people to serve her. After all, there are so many things to do, how can she do them all herself?

The Great Rat Prometheus

The Great Rat Prometheus is a magical being whose domain is underground, but whose entertainment is above ground, among the humans. He loves to manipulate others, and to keep tabs on everyone and everything.

Henrietta may just be a backyard chicken, but she’s a smart chicken, and everyone says she has the prettiest feathers. She can’t speak Human, but boy, does she have a lot to say! If only someone would listen.

Steven the Squirrel

Steven spends his days eating, sleeping, teasing the neighborhood dogs, and serving his mighty ruler The Majestic King Ralph. He’s excited to attend Aloysius Aldufarb’s birthday party – mostly for the snacks, but also because he loves to be at King Ralph’s beck and call.
